„No one saves us but ourselves,
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path
Buddhas merely teach the way.
By ourselves is evil done,
By ourselves we pain endure,
By ourselves we cease from wrong,
By ourselves become we pure.“

—  Gautama Buddha philosopher, reformer and the founder of Buddhism -563 - -483 v.Chr
